Notes From The Past Episode 6




"Public Safety". Jim Davidson of the Rutland Historical Society talks about the history of crime in Rutland and the protection from crime, particularly theft. Crimes of violence were infrequent. Protection from crime was pretty much in the hands of the county sheriff. As the population grew, so did crime. In the 1880s a village police force performed the police function. As the city of Rutland was organized a small full-time police force was employed. The program also talks about the development of the Rutland Fire Department from a volunteer fire department to a full-time professional fire department. The program includes a note about Rutland's major floods and fires. The program concludes with the note that crime is an unsolved issue in Rutland as well as most of America.
